Looking the other way is 'the wrong way'

According to Jarret Stepman, a contributor to The Daily Signal, the San Diego Unified School District has approved a policy that will not penalize minority students for late assignments, bad classroom behavior, or absenteeism.

Stepman thinks this policy is bad from beginning to end.

"I think that the idea that this will simply improve the success of students if they're no longer disciplined for absences or discipline problems [is] the wrong way of looking at the problem," he submits. "I think it ultimately doesn't help those students succeed in school at the time or in the future."

Added to that, Stepman says this policy punishes students who are trying hard to do well in school.

"We've had countless stories of students who feel that they've been bullied, that, essentially, some students are allowed to run the classroom," he relays. "They're afraid to go to school. And that's not an environment that's conducive to high academic achievement."

This policy is consistent with the Obama administration's push to crack down on racial disparities in school discipline, according to Stepman.
